Farmers and Agriculture

NIOSH studied hearing loss among agricultural and forestry workers and found that as many as one and three have noise-related hearing loss.

As many as 78% of agricultural workers report hearing loss. Even so, few report regularly wearing hearing protection.

The addition of enclosed tractor cabs makes some farmers feel they are blocking most of the dangerous levels, but researchers found that enclosed cabs still exposed farmers to as many as 92 decibels.

Any additional noise, such as the radio, only added to the danger.

As a farmer, you work long hours to keep us fed. Your machines don’t stop during harvesting seasons, even when it gets dark. You get up early. You go to bed late. You deserve hearing protection that allows you to get the rest you need to keep the farm going.
